Circular Star (Seinan Music 008): Out Now →
Latest Seinan EP out now from new(ish) artist Circular Star, another Glaswegian joining the ranks. More on this lad to follow,
When newness is the sole purpose of gathering, collecting and listening to music via the internet the exercise becomes inherently futile. This senselessness is never immediately apparent. It’s easy to then loose vast amounts of time essentially getting burnt out searching for the latest podcast, with the most upfront tunes. This article isolates being unique as the true path to existing in the...
This post is made up of two unconnected things. I could attempt to make some laboured comparison between these things but i cannie be bothered. 1. The Weeknd. These guys have generated a lot of hype. I’ve read shitloads about the group and I can’t add anything worthwhile to that. The song I like the most at the moment is below, called “The Morning”. This chopped and...
Seinan Music Party
Just like the Vengaboys, Seinan like to party. Join the label in a celebration of celebrating. Something Glaswegians know how to do properly. More explicitly, Circular Star and Nathan Spooner are Seinan Music’s latest signings and both relative newcomers. Those two, Sei A and Logan will be playing the music they are currently enjoying. It’s at the Question Mark Bar: 129 Stoke...
Back from the deid
Friend of Seinan, Glasgow’s very own Mash chooses his top 5 labels that are back from the dead. “Everyone used to bang on about Metalheadz, Ram and Logical Progression but for me, drum and bass meant Moving Shadow. It was a quality label that was overshadowed by its more media savvy rivals. Yeah the early artwork was a bit dodgy, but so was the fashion of the day. I for one was...
2011 - Let's go!
We were sleeping like Keith last month so here is Sei A’s edit of the Stones. Rolling Stones - Gimme Shelter (Sei A Edit) This is in celebration of January getting straight to fuck and 2011 starting properly! Download above….
Bleep top 100
Sei A’s White Rainbow has been included in Bleep’s top 100 of 2010. There’s some heavy hitters in the list so it’s good to see this belter of a track included. Top hunner.
So. It’s 2011. It’s January and hard to be to cheerful about much. However, a lot of really good music came out last year. End of year lists are standard but for good reason. They remind you of tunes you had forgotten and the places you first heard them or offer tunes you missed and can now discover. It’s always interesting to see who’s gone for something that came out...
Logan - 5 UK Garage belters
Logan, Seinan Music’s top knob, runs through 5 of his favourite UK Garage numbers. “With the exception of Hip Hop, this was the first ‘dance’ music I really got into, all be it almost exclusively via tape singles purchased from Woolworths in Dumbarton. UK garage has recently received a well deserved revival thanks to the current UK Bass scene and the obvious influence...
Jamie XX/Gil Scott-Heron
This came out recently. I like it. Buy it here. The full album is coming out next year.
I’m not from Glasgow but I’ve lived there for the last 13 years. Long enough. The Barrowlands is one of those places folk always talk about. The thing is it actually lives up to it’s reputation. I picked the picture because of the wet street and because it’s usually raining in Glasgow. It’s an old ballroom. The floor is sprung and the ceiling is domed with stars...
Sei A 'White Rainbow' ...........
After a long wait Sei A’s second album is finally released on Tiga’s Turbo Recordings. We have been exited about this project for over a year here at Seinan Towers and now the rest of the world gets to hear Andy’s most stellar work to date; and there is more to come. “He has a sound filled with rich textures, moody atmospheres, subtle psychedelia and haunting vocals;...

Surfin is a track that still excites me every time I listen to it …. and I have been doing that for months. Oibusta just...
Thomas Von Party - Top 5 All Time DJ...
Turbo Records’ A&R man Thomas Von Party picks 5 mixes and some tunes that made them. “This 1992 mixtape is a real milestone for me. I think it’s still my favourite all-time house mix. It’s got some cheesy moments on there, to be sure, but it still stands up. Mission Control’s ‘Outta Limits’ was always a big standout for me, but this is all about the...
